The couple got engaged last May but have kept their relationship low-key despite constant media attention.

The pair have planned a quiet, intimate wedding in Provence but have kept friends and family largely in the dark about final nuptial arrangements, and they’ve also tried to avoid the glare of international publicity. 

James, keyboard player for indie rock band, The Klaxons, grew up in Stratford and attended the high school. Last year his father Nick told the Herald the couple were “over the moon” when they announced their engagement.

“They’re a truly lovely couple. You can tell with some people if they’re made for each other and these two definitely are,” Nick said.
